RaeAnn is a small lady from a small town but she has a huge heart! She has been involved in animal rescue for around 5 years. RaeAnn is a retail manager, small business owner, and tattoo model with dreams of one day running her own rescue.​​

​I earn a living at a small cannery in Northumberland and live in Sunbury with my bestie, Scoobs. I adopted him about 3 yrs ago from the Danville SPCA. I don’t mind dirt or hard work, I love helping Anne with the dogs at K9 Hero Haven. They are the most wonderful dogs and have done so much for us. It's only right to take care of them in their retirement.

​​Hi, I'm Bill, I am a US Army Veteran.  The dogs are great therapy for me.  I love them all and understand them and I am willing to do whatever it takes for them.

My name is Martina Bennick, I'm a graduate of Bloomsburg University and moved to Kentucky for a job at USGS. I hike a lot, and geology field work is super exciting, so I'm happy to be out doing more stuff that helps animals!

I love being with the dogs and it's so amazing to see all of their different personalities and spirits! This is the best volunteer experience I've ever had.  I started out working in the kennels, but have since switched to helping with computer stuff so that I can be involved even though I moved.

​​ My name is Jen Bennick. I served 6 years in the Air Force before receiving an honorable medical discharge.  I adopted my dog, Inga, a shepherd/ husky mix, in 2013 from a shelter when she was 2 yrs old.  As I got to learn Inga's likes & strengths, I wanted to explore dog sledding.  Together the two of us are Road Less Traveled dog sled team & we live for snow!!

The work I do at the kennel not only benefits the dogs, but it is great therapy for me too. I am glad I can contribute to this team.  I started out working in the kennels, but have switched to a more behind-the-scenes role.
